Work Report

To develop skills in time and project management, and in communications, students are required to complete a work report which is evaluated by the university. While the report generally comprises a project selected by the student and approved by the employer, the employer may also assign the topic. It usually involves the analysis of a practical, work related physical education issue. The use of employer facilities and the allocation of time to the student for the report is at the employer's discretion. Specific steps can be taken to protect confidentiality where required.
